Default Sega Columns $1.99

According to Sega:

I don't see a price change in the app store yet, but will check again later. Given the reviews (and the fact that I played enough of this game 15(?) years ago), I was not about to buy it - but hey, free is free.

How any of this ties into Independence Day is beyond me, I can't wait to see what developers want to make free for Arbor Day.

Just to let you know, the conrols are terrible. I bought it because I was a big fan of Puyo Puyo, and it is impossible to play. It is way better to just play from an emulator.

To be worse, this isn't even a port. The game is a toned down version of a moblie version. That means less options and worse graphics.

Cocometer (sorry, I had to): 2 out of 5

It may be fun for newbies, but those true to the series will find it impossible to play once it gets to the faster parts.

I've also got a free version called Billionaire on the app store, with much nicer controls, imo.

Used to play this on my Game Gear! All my cartridges went up in smoke in a fire, I still have the console... Will have to try this if it's for free!
